And The Nominees Are… (Pt II)

It’s Oscar nominations day and the results are in! Place your bets now.

Not too many surprises this year, though Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson missed out, as did Blue is the Warmest Colour. Well-deserved nods went to newcomer Barkhad Abdi and to Jennifer Lawrence (excellent yet again!) in the supporting categories. But the hardest fought category looks to be Best Actress, with Cate Blanchett (in the role of her career) squaring up against Amy Adams (in the role of her career), Sandra Bullock (who carries an entire film on her shoulders) and cinema doyennes Judi Dench and Meryl Streep.

Here are the nominees in full, with my predicted (or maybe hoped for) winners in bold.
